the obama administration to let texas go it alone. texans have company in this idea as americans in more than 30 states are floating the plan on the white house web site i thought the civil war was over a couple hundred years ago almost. i'm not surprised. >> oregon's petition as more than 10,000 signatures. what is really motivating folks who want to opt out of america. >> it would be interesting to find out what they think the benefit of it was would be. >> reporter: once any pet i go reaches 25,000 signatures in 30 days' time it mandates a response from the obama administration. but the bottom line is this might be a good way to americans to air their frustrations but the petitions carry no legal weight. >> it is not in the president's power under the constitution to let a state is he cede. it is not clear whether anyone, even congress, could let a state secede. it might take a constitutional amendment.. >> reporter: petitions from louisiana and texas are reaching a threshhold for response. you can see these petitions for yourself online at white house.gov. >>> to baseball now, you kn
for the second term of the obama administration. it will not be easy. we all know that. this is not a slam dunk. it depends on dynamics within the republican party. there's a lot of opposition and resistance to that. we have to watch it closely. clearly, there seems to be more space and more of an opportunity to do something serious on this issue which we eluded to in the report then before. the second issue, cuba, it's also striking that i think president obama won almost half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70 # ,000 votes, and which, i think, reveals that the politics within the community may be changing significantly. again, this probably shouldn't have come as a great surprise or shock to those following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement and opening from the obama -- with cuba from the obama administration's point of view, i think, there's been important steps that were made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans making travel more flexi
mitchell who was the u.s. envoy during the obama administration who tried to get israeli/palestinian peace talks off the ground. that didn't happen. what he told us earlier in the day, listen to this. >> what's happened in the past is when the damage gets so great, one side or the other, pulls back and stops. or when the possibility of a much wider conflict emerges, people tend to stop. i think the probleis that you just keep the cycle going unless you address ro causes. anat th is getting the parties into negotiations to try to resolve the underlying conflict. >> all right. what do you think? you agree with him? >> well, there are some palestinians that are willing to talk. but not to hamas. the hamas believe in their charters the destruction of israel. and they will use the people that do want to speak from the palestinians to get any accomplishment they can and use their terror and their viciousness to try and wipe us off the map. these are not people you can speak to. unfortunately, they're using force and try to achieve accomplishments through force. and these people have to be very,
, larry, that was at 6600 in march. 2009 but doubled to 13,000 under the obama administration? >> well, it was until he got re-elected. >> yeah. >> people think he's turning against them. >> i remember hearing the same argument from you in march of 2009 when the stock market was at its low, and you said that the obama administration policies were going to kill the stock market. and instead, it doubled. so people invested and made a ton of money. the reality, larry, is that elections have consequences. the election is over. the republicans lost. it's time to get over it and move on. that means we have to come together and create some sort of compromise. but it doesn't mean the republicans get their way and they don't move it all to the left. there has to be some movement to the center on both sides. the president's already indicated that in terms of spending cuts, which he said repeatedly. and what the democrats -- >> i never heard spending cuts. i never heard anything about spending cuts. he never heard -- >> he may not have said it today but there were references. >> like i said, you
singled out the obama administration for what he calls its indifference. >> we have to go back and re-examine the diplomating setting, if you will. people will be pushed to say we can't afford to ignore this region. we can't afford to ignore this conflict because we look back on the last four years and the indifference, if you will, of the obama administration to what is happening on the west bank and gaza. and i think there will be pressure. there will be pressure from egypt, from turka, pressure from qatar, the three countries that are most sympathetic to hamas. pressure to produce some kind of settlement. >> discussing the u.s. response to the israeli-palestinian crisis. if izrail launches a ground attack in gaza, experts say the battle could be as bloody as the 2008 invasion that killed 1400 palestinians or worse. since then, hamas has gotten better weapons and better trained its foot soldiers as well. brian todd explains what a ground war in gaza might look like. >> reporter: a precision strike from the air killing the chief of hamas' military wing, but it appears israel is getti
. conservatives are deshed to make it into a full-blown obama administration scandal. it involving his successor in afghanistan, marine corps general john allen. they both have kexzs to jill kelly who does volunteer work with military families. kelley alerted a friend of hers at the fbi after receiving harassing e-mails. them call from paul broadwell, petraeus's biographer. they admitted to having an fair. that affair led to hez rez mags. they discovered potentially inappropriate communications between jill kelley of am tm pa and general allen. they reviewed 30,000 pages of documents including e-mails over the course of two years, but found no wrongdoing by general allen. the fbi turned it over to the pentagon, and the pentagon has ordered its own investigation. the married general allen denies an improper relationship with kelley. he's currently president obama's choice for supreme allied commander of nato forces in europe. that nomination is on hold. as nbc news reports the president learned of the problems on friday, the same day he accepted petraeus's resignation. that hasn't stopped the con
interested in figuring out how to use this to attack eric holder and the obama administration broadly? what's similar the way they deal with the benghazi situation, there really are significant, important questions that need to be asked. we shouldn't -- we need to separate that out from what is also just a very sad but all too common story about a man getting brought down by, you know, being distracted by a woman. >> the white house is supporting general allen, although his nomination of supreme allied commander is put on hold. what do you make of that? >> i think that's appropriate. there is an investigation going on at dod. let me speak more broadly. i actually talked to folks at the department of justice. the thing we have to remember is what we know now is not what they knew when they started the investigation. when they started the investigation, they didn't know what they had, and as facts unfolded, they decided to take sort of the next step. from everything we know at this point, people went up their chain of command, which ended with going to clapper who went to the white house and
, the obama administration will not define exactly what happened. the press has been largely negligent in pursuing the story. now the testimony is under oath, so it's serious. there are two ways this thing could go. first, into a watergate type spectacle with cover-ups and goh gus statements to the american people, or second. >> it could be a big nothing. a human error that spiraled out of control. the problem is compounded by the president's refusal to define anything. he continues to say there is an investigation, so he can't even give us basic facts like when prosecute you told, mr. president, about the attack in benghazi? an answer to that question cannot possibly impact any investigation, nevertheless, mr. obama refuses to provide it. that raised all kinds of conspiraciy theories and now you have the petraeus situation added to the mix. at a press conference today, reporter asked senator john mccain if the fact that general petraeus' mistress kept secret documents in her possession was it more serious than the entire libyan debauchle? >> well, i say with great respect, that's one

continued their probe by searching broadwell's north carolina home. as the obama administration faces turmoil with two top military leaders, reports are continuing to emerge of the potential makeup of its second term cabinet. according to the washington post, massachusetts senator and former presidential candidate john kerry has emerged as a potential candidate to become the next secretary of defense. a decorated veteran of the vietnam war, john kerry became known in the 1970's when he returned home from vietnam to call for u.s. withdrawal. the current u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, is rumored to the top candidate to replace y clinton as secretary of state. rice was asked about her future plans on monday. >> i love my job here in the united nations. i always have. i always will. especially today. i look forward to serving as long as president obama would like to. >> the obama administration has announced it will likely decide in the coming weeks on the role of u.s. troops in afghanistan after a scheduled withdrawal in 2014. on monday, defense secretary leon panetta said alth

, violence, and corruption in many countries in latin america. i think obama administration will probably say it has done some things to move forward on this issue, talking about shared responsibility, but i think despite some changes in the discourse, the essential elements of the policy have been pretty unchanged until now. again, this does open some -- possibilities. the reaction in mexico will be particularly critical to see where this goes. president-elect peña nieto will be here at the end of this month. i'm sure this has got a lot of attention in the mexican press and among mexican commentators and i'm sure this will be raised and discussed with president obama when peña nieto is here. it is had complications to the u.s. policy in latin america. there is an opportunity that perhaps is greater than when we wrote the report in april to make some progress on these issues. there is more space, little more pressure. at the same time, it is probably smart to keep expectations in check and under control. president obama, i think, has been shown to be pretty cautious when it comes to foreign
scandals, events and even acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely,

on the destruction of israel. why? because politics takes precedence under the obama administration and both post election surprises all come on the heels of benghazi. remember, when the president had his way that truth would still be hidden as well and we would all still be blaming the death of four americans on a youtube movie trailer. it's time to lift the veil of secrecy. joining me now to do just that is ronald kessler. and utah congressman jason chaffetz is with us. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> what do you make of it? >> this administration is withholding information from the american people and they are engaged in a concerted effort to mislead the world and mislead the american people. >> to what extent do you think this was connect today benghazi? why now? he was supposed to testify this week. >> it's so suspicious. it's not a coincidence. he is probably the one that knows most about what happened or didn't happen in benghazi. a lot of senators don't believe he was telling the truth before. this begs more questions than it answers. >> ron kessler, you knew october 10th that thi

think the big issue we are going to face of the next four years of the obama administration, and you are seeing this play out to some degree even this weekend as you watch what is unfolding in gaza, as you see the continuing argument over benghazi, as you see the continuing debate about the degree to which the united states needs to intervene more fully in syria, if you see a big argument about whether or not the united states needs to be centrally involved in issues in which its interests may not be completely vital, and that is a big change for the world. that may be the normal. >> okay. i realize i forgot something. halifax is nothing if not cutting edge, and so you are all encouraged to add tweet or have your aides tweet whatever insights you may find. halifax 2012. and we are going to have a force multiplier in the social media realm of the great insights that are here. so you should be the first one who has actually tweeted. >> seen from europe, the new normal that i can see does not look so dramatically different from the old normal. it has become popular in europe to speak of
through a presidential election. president obama was re-elected. and the obama administration had a number of i think foreign policy and counterterrorism successes during the first administration. obviously osama bin laden was killed in the special operations raid. president obama's oversea drawdown of tops in iraq as well as afghanistan. and yet i think one of the most lasting legacies from the first term of the obama administration may well be what u.s. officials termed the yemen model. this is sort of how it is that the u.s. is going to fight these wars, these wars against nonstate actors, wars against groups like al qaeda in the future. and in many ways i think that during the first term of the obama presidency yemen has become the laboratory for this sort of approach. yemen is now a place over the past four years where the u.s. has tested out different ways in which it could fight al qaeda. so we've seen a number of different approaches and we've seen the obama administration move away from what the bush administration attempted to do with sort of large ground scale invasions of iraq
about transparency in the obama administration as reports surface that epa administrator lisa jackson is one of several officials under congressional investigation for allegedly using a private e-mail and an alias, and the motivation is allegedly so that she could skirt the rules and hide controversial correspondence from the public, the press and even internal epa inspectors. and she's not the only one being implicated. joining me now with more, brad blakeman and marjorie clifton, former consultant to the obama campaign and principal at clifton consulting. okay, so this house committee has launched an investigation into whether ms. jackson is trying to get around public disclosure laws. because if you talk about it for the most part as a government employee, we get to see it, you know? we get to file a freedom of information request, and you have to give it over to us. that's why if you're thinking about e-mailing president obama anytime soon, know that it's all going to be a matter of public record and retrievable for the ages. [laughter] so ms. jackson, according to this house comm
the obama administration from defending doma to arguing that it's unconstitutional has recommended to the court that it grants cert in the winter case. there are two cases. a lot of petitions have been filed. there only two cases in which there has been a court of appeals opinion. the windsor case in the second circuit and the gill case from the first circuit. i think the lindsay cases the more likely one in part because the justice department has recommended that. so i really think that case is going to be -- that case is going to be heard. i would be extremely surprised if the supreme court does not grant review in that case and we do not get a decision on the constitutionality of doma. the other cases, the famous case which chad knows a little bit about is the prop 8 case from california. that is where, from a ninth circuit appeals decision, which by a 2-1 vote, struck down prop 8 from the supreme court, the impact will be to affirm the ninth circuit opinion and will be unconstitutional. i think it's a big question with what the court is going to do. there are demons made to the
, this is the narrative, the obama administration was pushing. we have al qaeda on the run. we joined with the british and the french bombing libbia, got rid of qaddafi. libya is a friend. obam had to kill this. he is a hands-on commander in chief. that was his narrative in the election, benghazi blew that. that's why this evolved. whether it was a coverup or the fog of intelligence -- whether it was intentional, we will find out. >> sean: two weeks later tdoesn't seem plausible. >> it doesn't seem possible. this is exactly the obama administration, instead of taking responsibility and stepping forward, it's divert and defend. he keeps putting it back on the intelligence community. he is the president of the united states. he sent an ambassador out there, the u.n. ambassador to say it was because of a video. the job of that ambassador and the president to is to uphold and defend the constitution of the united states, including free speech. he should have never blamed it on the video. the idea they don't know who took out the talking points-- >>> they want as a distraction, the general petraeus affair
at it strategically, do you feel that those are the core issues before president obama and this administration and our country going into 2013? um, if not, what would you change, what would you add? >> i -- when i was informed by lori murray about the outcome of the process by which the world affairs councils went through and came up with those six issues, i thought you had it exactly right. i think those are the big issues, and congratulations to you. i think you have them just right. i think there is an overarching issue on top of all of them that in some sense effects and enables all of them x that is if you look at at the national security challenges and the foreign policy challenges we face, i say that the number one challenge is getting our fiscal house in order. getting a handle on the debt, getting a handle on the deficit which are critical in order to get the economy growing again and people back to work. and i think that is the over -- it's certainly the number one domestic challenge. my point is it's always the number one national security challenge. why? because a healthy economy and a hea
states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater threats to our closest allies and to ourselves? unfortunately, that's what we're seeing. in fact, i had seen an article in may of 2010 that indicated that this administration, the obama administration, sided with israel's enemies in demanding that israel disclose any nuclear weapons. we had never sided with israel's enemies in trying to push israel into doing something against its own interests. when you're a very small country surrounded by countries that want to see you go away, it is important that they not know all of your defenses. going back in the old testament, you find history, king his kaija -- king hezekiah showing all the defenses they had in their armory he showed them to the leaders from babylon. as a result, ultimately that kingdom was lost to the babylonians. you don't show other nations, even people you th
that happens, most likely iranian supported elements started this. >> obama administration backs israel. is president obama standing with israel as in your judgment as he should? >> yes. so far he did. in the sense that he has no other option. no american president can come and say i'm with hamas against israel. he is with israel against hamas. at the same time this is the worst time for explosion to occur in the middle east. we know our situation in. we have an economic situation. ee needs unity in congress that is support of israel. we have the benghazi hearing. we may have to look at our national security doctrine. we have an arab spring that is being taken over by islamists. so putting that pressure that the u.s. can only do this and not more. >> gregg: hamas runs the authority in gaza. it's also a terrorist organization. it is recognized as a terrorist organization by the united states. hamas refuses to recognize israel, it's charter to this day vows the destruction of israel. does the international community including importantly the united nations need to stop supporting the hama
like we saw in the bush administration, and republicans have criticized obama for a delay in issuing federal permits for drilling. >> john: uh-huh. >> but remember in april of 2010, we had the deep water horizon incident, right? where because of mismanagement and gross negligence on the part of a foreign oil industry -- >> john: and let's give haliburton credit too. >> absolutely. and you have trans-ocean who used to be a u.s. corporation, and then they left to avoid paying taxes. you have three companies who as i wrote last year appear to hate america. because haliburton moved its incorporation to the middle east as well. but bottom line is the delays in permits wasn't because of a crazy environmentalist in the obama administration it was because a private corporation could not handle its own business affairs. >> john: right. and this was discussed in the third presidential debate. >> right. and the president didn't make a forceful enough case to say listen we had the largest environmental and industrial disaster in american history that was caused by gross ne
'm not sure in the alternative what advantage anyone thinks the obama administration was going to get by misleading. the event happened. did anyone think the obama administration was trying to preserve some illusion that terrorists never would hit us as long as obama was president? we have been at war with terrorists 11 years and lost thousands of lives. i don't understand the point that graham is making, and the idea to question why did you put susan rice on the talk shows? administrations make decisions every week about who they will put out to repeat talking points. it doesn't really make much sense to me to be honest. >> to that end, then, amy, you have senator graham, other republicans, john mccain for one, they are calling for a special prosecutor. john harwood brings up these questions, but does it ego to the level of needing a special prosecutor? how far do you think this will go? >> clearly there is a movement on the republican side to keep this going. as we heard senators graham and mccain want a special investigation. we have representative mike enentire, the chairman of th
's cabinet. there's a report that the attorney general will stay on for the second obama administration. we told you yesterday how he wants susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. margaret brennan is in washington. >> reporter: president obama views susan rice as his quarterback at the u.n. when he nominated her to be the ambassador he elevated that role to cabinet level. a status that her predecessors did not have. for this next promotion the president will fight skeptical republicans who question rice's judgment in the days following the benghazi attack. >> i still don't know how anybody of that capacity could have been on television five days later saying the things that were said. i don't know how that can happen. >> she has to answer questions about that. there's no doubt about it. >> reporter: susan rice hit a nerve during a string of television appearances five days after the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. she didn't call it a act of terror. >> we do not have information at present to lead us to conclude it was preplanned. >> reporter: that's leading

. regardless of what we do, the obama administration come as they look at us, they have to decide if we are going to try to contain us this and fortify those borders, try to provide aid to syria's neighbors, hoping we can stop the bleeding in a sense, or are they going to intervene and try to end this conflict? it is what a lot of those neighbors would probably like to see, especially the turks. the that contains a lot of risk that contains a lot of potential problems for the obama administration. the president obama is going to think long and hard about this one. bill: michael, thank you. out of washington. a terrific guest. martha: a high-stakes meeting of the white house going on. obama welcoming business leaders. he has had a difficult relationship with wall street throughout the course of his tenure. some of business leaders as well. trying to avert the fiscal cliff by raising taxes. how will that be received? are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-te
of the obama administration with some trouble. it caused a real rift to open up between the administrations and i would say that now you've got on the a place where it's a reasonably workable relationship but i wouldn't expect there is a lot of love loss between those two. they see each other as partners they have to deal with but don't have a high estimate of each other. he routinely cast gates the united states for it's military operations, for civilian casualties and a variety of other things that the obama white house doesn't take well to those criticisms and the white house has criticized him for his effectiveness and corruption and so on and that doesn't go well. so it's not a great relationship but there have been periods when it was worse during the past four years. host: let's go to a map of the region. you brought up pakistan. some reports saying it's hiding some of these militants that are involved in the upheaval that's going on within the afghanistan population. guest: yes, ever since 9/11 it's been widely appreciated that many of the afghanistan taliban leaders were forced out

democrats and republicans. republicans are critical. they believed the obama administration should have known right away this was not as spontaneous attack. they want to know who knew what, when. did the president know about the attack? when did his national security team know about the attack? there were people in tripoli and libya with the state department saying there was not enough security concerns because of some of the things going on in libya at the time. good >> the senators made remarks about you in ambassador susan rice. what did they say? >> basically, they do not trust her. they think she should have known better. it looked to be a spontaneous response. they think it is clear there was an organized element. the white house is saying, and today we heard from a democrat who said the intelligence community reaffirmed that was the best information they had at the time. she was repeating the information they provided her. now those intelligence committees, they will hear from david petraeus. what do they want to know from former director petraeus? >> they said this was going to
department first two years of the obama administration. but there's also a republican i'm going to mention here, richard haas. he's currently the president of the council on foreign relations, and he was a special assistant to president george h.w. bush, and during the administration of george w. bush, he served as the commissioner of policy and planning, same position as slaughter. he argues that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but it needs to become weaker. states should wont a weakened sovereignty, he says, ford to protect himselfs -- in order to protect themselves. i want to make one thing absolutely cheer clear. i'm not talking against international law in general or against international relations, and i draw a clear distinction between transnationalism and globalism and nationalism. there's nothing wrong with having international treaties. that means between nations. so the united states has a nato treaty. we get together with western europe, we're going to defend ourselfves, there's nothing wrong with that. same thing. i am criticizing in the book supernational,
i just made you that. we like your -- your take on this. the obama administration should model itself after the roosevelt administration during the great depression of world war ii. the head of goldman sachs -- >> not teddy roosevelt. you said the roosevelt. there were two of them. >> stephanie: could i get through this, please. jim knows. he's the official historian. the goldman sachs chief executive said in an opinion piece in the 1930s, there was extreme bitterness between the business community and the roosevelt administration. he wrote corporate executives deplore franklin roosevelt's policies. he said he welcomed their hatred. the two sides worked together spurring a colossal increase that lifted the u.s. out of the great depression. he sees a similar opportunity now once the obama administration and the corporate community compromise so as not to derail the recovery. there is more than a trillion dollars of cash sitting on the balance sheets of companies with certainty about tax rates companies wi
% cash back on almost everything. >>> we could see changes in the obama administration, sooner rather than later. >> the president faces a number of challenges right now, including avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff. joining us is david gregory. >> good morning, david. >> good morning. >> a lot of talk about david petraeus. the spotlight this week is when he went before the intelligence committee to talk about the attacks on libya. >> that's right. i think that's become a big focus beyond his personal problems and his affair, and the question of whether there was a government coverup at some level? a lot of focus on susan rice, the ambassador who came on the show who said this was a spontaneous attack, not something terror related. she did testify about that the real issue we'll tackle this morning was had she contradicted the view of the administration, saying she did believe it was terrorism all along, and even at the outset, talking points given by the intelligence community to susan rice, that have the elimination of any reference to the terror attack. >> will this set up a confi
to find a safe haven because they know that the taxes are going to be higher than the obama administration is currently citing and they're afraid and they're terrified. >> that amounts to tax evasion, you move money off shore you've got to declare where it is and any income that you made on it. and are you telling us that rich folks are basically avoiding taxes? >> well, i think they're trying to be creative, like they always have been of the creativity makes the rich wealthy and that's what i found out over interviewing them over the last 30 years is that creativity is the best thing and i think they're trying to be honest about it, but creative. >> when does it come back to america? >> i don't know. it's a really good question, i'm asking them that and they don't know either. is america ever going to be the same? i don't know, four more years of both the obama administration, are we going to-- are we going to recognize this question after four more years, i hope so, i don't know. stuart: you're painting a pretty grim idea of the mood. it sounds like they're in despair. >> they are. there
. the only problem with moving the threshold from the perspective of the obama administration is that really reduces the amount of revenue that you are born to collect to pay down the deficit. makes the argument less meaningful because you do sacrifice a chunk of money. and you have to find the money elsewhere. host: water other sticking points as we talk about the fiscal cliff -- what are the other sticking points as we talk about the fiscal cliff? guest: the things that people agree on, we need to deal with the deficit. and that we would like to do corporate tax reform next year. the task to be extended for household income below $250,000. everything else is a sticking point. neither of these big questions about what can a government which should have, do we want a government that provides medicare and medicaid for everyone that needs it. how do we want to pay for that? had we want to tax people? what is the best way to stimulate the economy? there are all of these ideas floating around. many were litigated during the presidential campaign. they cannot quite a bit during the debate. we hea
. it's certainly a huge deal for the obama administration. we have new details about when and how the president was told about the allen bombshell. and the latest development, our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is joining us now. jessica, first of all, what are you learning? >> hi, wolf. we understand that the president was first told there might be trouble with general allen and this investigation on friday, when the white house's counsel office was notified that there could be trouble with his nomination to become nato supreme allied commander. then on monday evening, the president was notified that secretary of defense leon panetta has referred to matter to the defense department's inspector general. keep in mind, now, according to the timetable, the president had also just been told on thursday about general petraeus' indiscretions, so it must have been an awful lot to take in all in one week, right after the election. secretary -- press secretary jay carney says, though, it was out of the white house's hands, this time frame, for their notification. listen to
security in libya? two, did the obama administration try to mislead people as to the nature of the attack? and, three, did the administration deny pleas from our people at the consulate for help? let's start with the first. why didn't -- why didn't -- why wasn't there more security in libya previous -- previous to these attacks? >> well, first of all, assessments from the ground apparently were not getting back to washington, were not getting high enough. that compound was under surveillance by the local services. benghazi itself is a jungle. all sorts of islamic groups. somebody should have raised the red flag early on and either fortified that consulate or simply closed it. somebody made a mistake. i don't know who that was, whether it was the state department or the cia or the combination of the two. but they probably, in the loit of today, they should have pu pulled out a long time ago and run all these operations -- >> just going on to topic number two, did the obama administration try to mislead us as to the nature of the attack? we all heard what susan rice said. republicans say sh
be eager to help if the reelected obama administration wanted to take the lead and kickstart a process that deserves to be called a peace process. we certainly hope that would have been. with regard to the drug problem, i just want to add that of course everybody is now buying drones, even european armies are buying drones. but interestingly enough, as are injurious to countries in other parts of the world has declined because of the not so successful experience in over the last decade. i hope i'm correct i cannot recall a moment in recent history where in the absence of, you know, act of u.s. leadership or participation, the europeans are contemplating driving up plans right now for a military mission to molly. with the argument that what is going on in molly could he not necessarily, but could develop into something very similar to the kinds of phenomena that forced us into afghanistan a decade ago. so what i'm trying to say is the birth of the drug technology matters, i don't believe international development will allow us the luxury of keeping the boys home. there will be unfortuna
to the intelligence assessment. >> general, we have the gop still suggesting that the obama administration concealed the fact benghazi was a terror attack for political reasons. from what we have learned from general petraeus's testimony, doesn't it seem the administration held back information, if they did so it was because a genuine national security concern existed? >> well, you know, my take on this, alex, this is centralist political posturing inside washington. the problem was we had inadequate ground security there. that's a state department function, not cia. when the thing went bad we had this am bass do, bilingual in arabic, he shouldn't have been there. that was the problem. but -- characterized the mob was minutiae for good next sakes. libya is a mess. there's no government, no army. it's not a success. probably better than having that monster gadhafi and his family in charge of it. but that's the problem. they have to get their eyesight up. we've got a war in afghanistan going that's running us $6 billion a month and several hundred killed and wounded a month. and here we're focused on
that the obama administration is going to face in coming years. thank you very much for your time. [applause] >> so my second role is to be a discussed in bashing discussant. when jonathan asked me to take on this role, i cautioned him that one problem would be that i would likely be in violent agreement with both of them, and that turns in fact to be the case. so what is left to me really is to add a few comments to what's been said, not to pick at all at what they have said. part of what i would point to the is, as i said at the outset is that i think there's in -- also was the first panel, and jonathan's comments and just, too, going to the importance of leadership issues that just been before us, in thinking about these questions. so just going to tick off a few points to comment on. first on a personal rule of xi jinping. i agree that he really matters. i think there are two elements in foreign policy of nations that matter. one is a national interest. that can change but it changes very, very slowly. the other is the individual who comes to leadership with a different background, a dif
. >> stephanie: okay, lieutenant colonel calf peters fox security news expert. >> the obama administration just as the administration claimed that there was purely coincidence of the benghazi conflict was attacked on the anniversaries of september 11th. now it's purely coincidence that this extramarital affair surfaces right after the election. not before but after but before the intelligence chief go to capitol hill to get grilled. i subject that these chicago guys knew of this affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card. >> these tough chicago guys like eric cantor. >> and the republican guy from washington like jacki schechner was telling us? yeah, chicago guys. i'm sure sheldon knows some chicago guys, get some stuff done. >> stephanie: i'll have a little chat with karl rove about the money. >> where did you keep it? what did you do with it. >> stephanie: check in that bag of vipers for the money. >> where's our money, a bag of broken glass. there's your money. >> it's right out there outside of the window. lean out a little further. >> stephanie: jon
specific things have members said about the obama administration's response that has not been adequate enough? >> will come you hear different democrat and from republicans. republicans are particularly critical. they believe the obama administration should have known right away. this is not a spontaneous attack, not part of the protest, for example. they want to understand who knew what when. what does the president know about the attack? what is his national security team now? now they want to know who knew about the securities and the lead up to the attack because there were people in tripoli and libya saying that there wasn't enough security concerns because of the things going on in libya. >> mccain, graham and india yesterday made remarks about u.n. ambassador susan rice. what did they say in what is it mean in context context of the benghazi attacks? >> well, basically what they said is they don't trust her. they said she should have known better that you say five days after the attack but it looks to be a spontaneous response to anti-muslim video. they said she should have know
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organize niced to take tunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
to trigger a promised review from the obama administration. the report notes that 69 similar petitions according to the alter net have garnered over 670,000 signatures from all 50 states. prompting a review that will no doubt consist of junior white house staffers enjoying a good laugh before placing them in a circular file. not to be left out someone offered another petition to the administration to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed the petition to secede and exile them. so it is good to know after the election and a decisive democratic victory that we are all united now and will never fight again. travis is calling us from chicago, illinois. good morning travis. you're on the "bill press show." welcome. >> caller: good morning, john. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: every time i hear all of this big uproar about benghazi thing, it makes me sick because out here in chicago we've got about 20 kids killing each other every weekend. most of them are innocent bystanders getting killed. there is a good handful
a little too much of that freedom recently. the obama administration meanwhile is giving states another month to decide what role if anything they'll play in carrying out the new health care law. states have been required to declare intentions by today, but they'll have until december 14th. republican governors have requested more time and the associated press reports that 16 states are still mulling decisions. and the "wall street journal" report it is that the office of the controller of the currency will formally serve jcht p morgan chase with actions regarding money laundering. on the cc expected to allege weakness in the antimony laundering systems. andrew, i'm going to take the opposite side of you on the whole delta thing. it's so obvious to take that side to say -- >> let's get the article here. >> what if it's been proven that -- >> let help set it up. >> what if it's proven that age has very little to do -- >> here it is. delta flies new routes to profits older jets. the idea is hear one of the reasons they're making as much money as they are is because they're not buying new
